    FEISOL CT-3442 reviews

    CT-3442 Tournament Rapid Carbon Fiber Tripod is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Backpacking Legs I purchased this tripod to replace my heavier but more sturdy Gitzo for long backpacking and hiking trips. I climb a lot of mountains here in Colorado and like to take the tripod to the summits with me, so the lighter the better. I wanted something super light, easy to set-up, and sturdy enough to do astrophotography in light wind. I definately feel like I made a great selection after meticulous research. The Tournament 3442 provided me with every feature I asked for. I did not get the center column and found I really don't need it. The tripod was very easy to set-up for shots, much easier than my Gitzo, due to the Rapid legs. Amazing product, highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Although I've only used it a few times, I'm very happy with this purchase. Be warned (if you're short like me, 5'4) when you fully extend it you won't be able to see into the viewfinder. I knew that this tripod would be taller than what I needed, but based on the outstanding reviews, I decided to buy it anyway. So far, it has been very stable, even on a windy day at the beach. Very light and feels compact when carrying. I did research for months and months when deciding on a tripod/ball head. It was exhausting. So I finally decided to take a chance on the Feisol based on all of the reviews. I paired it with an Acratech GV2 Ball Head and I couldn't be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall, Dark and Handsome. My dream tripod - a great looking finish in carbon fiber but most importantly, lightweight and super sturdy. I've been using a Manfrotto 190PRO aluminum tripod with lever locks and never had reason to complain until now. What a noticable difference it makes setting up and taking down my new Feisol CT-3442. It's so fast and easy. The tripod is much taller than I expected even without a centre column. My dslr and lenses are heavyweights and I feel confident that this tripod will be up for the task at half the weight of the Manfrotto with the added bonus of it being a compact closed length to fit on my backpack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Things I like: I'm 5'9 and with the RRS-55 ball head it puts my viewfinder at eye level. No fear of shooting with the tripod fully extended unlike cheaper, less stable models. Quick and easy setup and take down. Light weight and compact. For the $$ I couldn't find a better value. Things I don't like: It is carbon fiber so there is some flex to it. I don't know if this will really cause me any issues but it's something I think about when using it. I couldn't take a star off the rating because it really has not been a problem, just different for me. All totaled, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this tripod again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy & Light Best travel tripod I found after quite an intensive search. Feisol tripods are rock solid carbon fiber structures. Maybe is because of the thick diameter of the legs; I'm not sure. What I'm sure is that I will buy their product again and again. I had the chance to try the traveller version and it was very sturdy compare to the rest, and by the rest I mean a lot of tripods I tried. Never the less it wasn't compatible with the video base column they offer, which is why I finally purchased the Tornament Rapid CT-3442 version. Is a bit longer than the traveller but it isn't longer than my old manfrotto and is way, way lighter and holds much more weight. It's has a very minimal design but is Efficient, Sturdy and Light. You can't go wrong with these qualities.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality I recently purchased this for landscape photography. I like that it comes without a center column initially, though this is something you can add later if you want. The tripod is incredibly smooth, and it just feels great to use. I'm about 5'11, and with a ball head it extends my camera to just above eve level fully extended, which is great. It gives me some latitude for adjustment. The tripod is solid, and is great for movement-free photography for the sharpest images. I couldn't be more pleased. It is light - I strap it to my photo backback, and it is easy to carry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Tripod! I was looking for a sturdy, lightweight tripod for hiking and general purpose use. I had a Manfrotto BeFree before this one which was very lightweight for hiking but it was too flimsy for shooting waterfalls where I'm typically standing in moving water. I can put this Feisol in the middle of a flowing stream and not have to worry about any movement. It's sturdy as a rock and works well for long exposures. Lightweight, sturdy and high quality, checks all the boxes for what I was looking for.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Base Plate Alert I purchased my Feisol CT-3442 last week from B&H in preparation for Iceland. I currently own both Gitzos and Manfrottos, but all of them are too large for international travel. I finally had the chance to field test it this morning in Rocky Mountain National Park after a good spring storm had passed. The weight, compactness, and height are everything I was looking for in this tripod; however, halfway through my sunrise shoot the base plate nearly fell out with my camera and lens attached. The set screws from the factory were not totally tightened. At first appearance they seemed secure even when I was trying it out around the house, but it nearly cost me my D800 & Nikon 70-200 mm f2.8 lens. Before purchasing this tripod I did exhaustive research and I may have recalled a post about this same issue, but the information seemed to blur together. If it was an oversight on my part, then my bad. If it was Feisol, then not cool. Either way just watch out and it is something that a little blue Loctite can't handle. Overall I am pleased with my purchase, but once again, if anyone does purchase any Feisol Tripod, please check the base plate before using. It just might save someone some hardship down the road. It's no Gitzo or Manfrotto, and I knew that when I bought it, but it is a great value. So, with everything considered I have to give it 3 stars.
